8/10 Very Good

Great Location/Poorly Maintained
The property is in a great location right on the beach so that was a big thumbs up, the outdoor areas of the complex were well maintained and clean. The apartment itself is in desperate need of some improvements, the kitchen cabinets are in a very poor condition including damaged hinges. The bed was very uncomfortable and as such we ended up sleeping separately, one on the sofa in the lounge and the other in the bed. Overall though we had a nice holiday but the maintenance issues, some of which would be easy fixes it would have improved our experience.

Great apartment - terrible communication
We were not told that the Hipocampus has no reception desk. We were locked out of the entire grounds. Luckily, we bumped into people who had stayed there before and showed us an office to get the keys. It was closed for Sunday. When we rang the office number on the door & the Hipocampus itself, all we got was a recorded message in fast Spanish. Eventually we met people who knew where the 7-day office was, but it's in the grounds of another hotel and not visible from the road. We got the key OK and the flat was lovely. It's IMPERATIVE that people are told how to get the key. We'd been wandering around for over an hour in the beginnings of Storm Gloria, getting very cold and wet and looking for a way in. Tip: there were only stockpots to cook in. Another holiday maker told us on the last day that frying pans are hidden in the oven. I nearly bought one as cooking meals in two stockpots is very limiting. Overall: the apartment was lovely; spacious and well-equipped (apart from the missing pans). BUT the lack of a reception - and lack of information on the gate as to how we could obtain the keys was dire.

6/10 Good

The location is excellent but the property itself was lacking in any character. Dark green furniture and no items such as pictures or ornaments to cheer it up. We had friends staying in the property next door which was much brighter and better furnished and much more homely and welcoming. Kitchen supplies were lacking e.g. no corkscrew so we had to buy one and 2 wine glasses (for an apartment which technically is for 3 people), 3 mismatched mugs and very cheap crockery and cutlery. The hot water boiler was switched off when we arrived so we had no hot water until we had figured out how to switch it on (there were no instructions on how to do this), the extractor fan in the kitchen didn't work, the light bulb in one of the bedroom lights was out and the heating system wasn't working. These last two points were quickly fixed when we contacted the reception but should have been checked prior to guests arriving. The bed linen consisted of a sheet and blanket which was inadequate for December. A further two blankets were in the wardrobe which were hard and scratchy and one was badly stained. The spare pillows in the wardrobe had no pillowcases on them. There was no cloth or sponge for washing dishes in the kitchen so we had to buy that as well.

The apartment needs updating, beds and sofa bed.
A lovely location had a fantastic holiday. But sofa was very dirty and smelt alful, beds need replacing, and had to ask several times for clean towels and bedding.

Ideal for beach holiday
Nice location but a nightmare to find as no street names in Calpe. It would be useful to have cleaning materials provided ie washing up liquid and clothes and instructions for the tv and heating ( in winter) and in season pay for parking as difficult on street. But location excellent

Pleasant position with a good view.
Comfortable apartment with all that was required. Indoor pool was a bonus in the winter. Opened straight onto the promenade and beach.

Close to the beach, but...
We spent 2 weeks holidays with a small kid at hipocampos apartments in september 2014. The apartment has very old furniture, sofa full of cigarettes holes. Small bed. Curtains full of dust. Bathroom furniture also very old, it's hard to keep it dry - water is always on the floor. The worst thing is the restaurant tequila right next to the hipocampos - it's all the music till 12am and loud shouting till 2am. i don't know if it's a customers or personnel, one night i was wake from loud scream "buenos noches!"

First time at Hipocampos and was pleasantly surprised at the size of the apartment. Large rooms with good level of fixtures and fittings. Nice Spa pool in basement. Please note you need a bathing cap. Check in was a bit challenging as we arrived at 7.00pm in the dark. After some searching found we had to walk to a nearby hotel; to check in. Instructions for this are outside the complex on the door of a apartment rental shop. Take a torch so you can read what to do. Apart from this point everything was excellent. Could view the sea from the balcony, dinning area and bedroom.

Great hotel but check in is an issue
Hippocampus is a nice hotel in a great location in Calpe. All balconies have a sea view and you're only 50m from the beach. The hotel is well maintained and the rooms are clean with good kitchen facilities. The indoor spa/pool is amazing and a great way to end the day. If you are going to stay here, then you need to be aware that there is no check in office at the actual hotel. You need to go 100m back up the main road (towards the Ifach Hotel) to the 24hr check in office situated at the front of another hotel. Also, baby cots are extra and charged at around 6 euros /day which is payable when you check in. parking is also an additional charge.
